SJP_shoes

Ok….. Let me calm myself down..Omg!! How many of you are fans of SJP?? I know I am!! I loved her in her coveted role of Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and The City. Her sense of style and grace about herself is soooo contagious, wouldn’t you agree!! I recently just came across an article Nordstorm’s website blog called “The Thread” titled, Behind the Scenes: O, The Oprah Magazine x SJP..

You have to click the link to read and watch the video about her newest venture which is her shoe line that will be launching in Nordstrom’s February 28 online!! I am so excited and clenching on to my wallet at the same time because her shoes and accessories will cost from $200 to $500. Ouch!! Maybe I will be able to save my money and not buy make-up in order to buy a piece of fashion history!!

I also read that she will be making special appearances in select Nordstorm’s.. If you live close to the Dallas area she will be appearing March 9th at NorthPark Center!! I am officially taking that weekend off in hopes of seeing her and purchasing a pair of pumps!! How about you??? Are you going to be checking out her shoe line?? Making a purchase? I would love to know!! This would be a perfect weekend to have a Girls night out…. Sex and the City style!! I am so ready to pop in a movie, research more of her style and create some of my own looks for future OOTD!! Until then.. I will try to contain myself to avoid any fainting of any sort, lol! j/k

Radiant Orchid!! A new year and new color trend to add to your beauty and fashion collections!! Pantone states, “Radiant Orchid is an enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm.” Visit Pantone’s website for more information behind the inspiration of this years color and about Pantone the company!

I am really excited about this color because I LOVE this color! I can’t wait to see how the beauty and fashion industry plays on this color this coming spring!!

I am totally going to buy a few new pieces that I can work with my existing wardrobe. How about you?? Please share dying to know 🙂

Fun In The Sun: Top 10 Items You Must Have

new 014006749 group six beautiful young girl

Hey beauties!! Memorial day weekend is just around the corner and I know many of you are planning to have fun with your friends and family, right? Many of you will be out shopping in the sun, hitting the waves at your local beaches looking like sun goddesses or at your local park having some fun over bar-b-que and games. Well…with all of the fun celebrating these are my top 10 must haves in order to have you looking great and protecting your youth at the same time!

  1. My first must have is a must!! A high performing sunscreen that will protect your beautiful skin from premature aging and hyperpigmentation (the dreadful brown spots). Shiseido’s Ultimate Sun Protection Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 50 For Face/Body, $39 is perfect for those of you that are going to be spending time outdoors in the sun. I love this sunscreen due to the light weight texture and the fact that this sunscreen is sand-and perspiration-proof along with being water-resistant for you beauties that love to hit the waves at your local beach or pool.
  2. For those of you that still crave to have a smooth and flawless complexion without the weight of a traditional foundation then this tinted moisturizer is perfect! NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Seychelles, $42:  In addition to the sun protection you will gain from this tinted moisturizer you will gain an radiant glow.
  3. Even though it is hot outside the sun can still dry out our kissable lips and burn them too! Which is why Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15 Sugar, $22.50made my list. Ever since I have received this as my Beauty Insider birthday gift from Sephora this has been a staple in my bag. It is non sticky and keeps my lips smooth while protecting them from getting burned from the sun!
  4. Water!! Yes I said it WATER!! You need to stay hydrated!! Water is good for your health and will help avoid heat exhaustion. The other great benefit to drinking water is that it will keep your skin-cells plumped and supple resulting in smooth and radiant skin! Keeping a water bottle close like this Brita Hard Sided Water Filter Bottle, $19.99is a must. I like the fact that it has a filter attach for worry free refilling at the beach or shopping center that has a public water fountain.
  5. Must have a fun and bright flowy maxi dress this summer. They are easy to throw on and style up and down with simple accessories!! They are also a nice item to take to the beach because they are so easy to cover up after hitting the waves!! I really love this Bar III Dress, Sleeveless Halter Keyhole A-Line Maxi dress, $59. This dress is easy and fun!! I love the price too and it’s from one of my favorites store, Macy’s!!
  6. Sunglasses!! Sunglasses are very fashionable, and they are great for protecting your youth!! They protect your eye sights and help aid in reducing the chances for premature crows feet around the eyes (wrinkles, don’t want them!) I love these Michael Kors Sunglasses, M2477S KARMEN, $136!! Simple and classic aviators are so fab, and did I mentioned that I am Michael Kors Obsessed, lol!!
  7. A summer signature scent..My favorite from last summer was Ralph Lauren Big Pony 2, $55. and it will be my main staple this summer too. It is a beautiful floral that is playful and fun on bright summer days!! I got so many compliments on it that I will wear it again this summer. I hope that don’t discontinue this one anytime soon!!
  8. If you are doing lots of walking shopping or at the beach you will definitely want some comfortable sandals. I like these DV by Dolce Vita Shoes, Denny Flat Sandals,$69. These sandals are simple, stylish and will keep your feet happy during your fun shopping or beach excursion.
  9. If you are going to the pool or beach you must have a fun and bright swimsuit!! For me bikini’s are a thing of the past..(Child stretched me out and now I need a tummy tuck, lol)So that is why I am loving this Hula Honey Swimsuit, Halter Crochet Tankini Top Women’s Swimsuit, $28. I love the texture and color!!
  10. Now ladies.. A tote is a must.. If you live in the Austin area you know the bag ordinance is in effective what means we really need to have a tote that fits all, right! That is why this MICHAEL Michael Kors ‘Medium Travel’ Tote. $278 is perfect!! You can fit swimwear, new finds from shopping and in on spot and if you have kids you can fit there things too!!

Fashion: 10 Different Ways to Wear Emerald

Have you ever wanted to wear the latest color trend Emerald, however you are too afraid that you will end up looking like the incredible hulk sporting that trend? Well today I am going to share with you 10 different ways you can wear Emerald and look fabulous. The first thing you will want to remember is when wearing a statement color try breaking up the color up into statement pieces in your current wardrobe! For example:

Wearing Emerald Trend Through Makeup:

  1. Light up your beautiful eyes with SEPHORA+PANTONE UNIVERSE Graphic Sculpt Waterproof Jumbo Eyeliner in Emerald. Adding a simple pop of emerald to the lash line is a  great way to turn your everyday neutral eye into a trendsetting look.
  2. If you are bold and love to play with color on your eyes then turn up the volume with SEPHORA+PANTONE UNIVERSE Color Theory Shadow Block – Elemental Emerald Shimmer, Appleblossom, Camel. I personally love this palette and own it! If you would like to see a tutorial on my youtube channel please leave your feedback by commenting to this blog post below.
  3. If you are not one to rock eye shadows you can also wear this trend on your nails and toes. Illamasqua Nail Varnish in Rampage will look so cute and chic! I also have this one…Lately I am obsessed with Ilamasqua’s nail varnish, however that would be another blog post and youtube video in itself. If you would like to see swatches of this one let me know!

Emerald COY 2013a

Wearing Emerald through Clothing & Accessories:

  1. If you are the fashionista and must have an article of clothing to sport this trend try adding a beautiful blazer like the Olivia Moon Linen Jacket shown above. This really takes the outfit from cute to fabulous in seconds!
  2. Are you shoe obsessed! Look at these cute and feminine heels by Steven by Steve Madden called ‘Ravesh’. I would love to have these in my closet!! How about you?
  3. How about adding a classic shaped handbag by MICHAEL Michael Kors. The ‘Selma – Large’ Leather Satchel is gorgeous!!
  4. Wearing earrings in the trend color of the year is another great way of wearing the trend without going overboard. Try  Tory Burch’s Logo Stud Earrings. Don’t you just love Tory Burch??
  5. How about some arm candy with these cute Cara Crystal Friendship Bracelet in a Green Multi/Gold setting. I totally want to purchase a few of these myself. I love the look of these types of friendship bracelet accessorized with my Michael Kors watch.
  6. Now, if you love wearing different colored watches try the Fossil ‘Retro Traveler’ Crystal Bezel Bracelet Watch in green.
  7. Lastly, to keep the sun out of your eyes fashionable eyes have some fun with these cute MARC BY MARC JACOBS Oversized Retro Sunglasses.

I hope that you found some of these tips and ideas helpful.  If you would like to see more post like this one in the future or swatches of the nail polish and eye shadows from this post please leave me some feedback by leaving comments below!

Outfit Of the Day: Boho Chic

The Outfit Details:

  • Sunglass: Cole Hann
  • Gladiator Sandals: Steve Madden
  • Handbag: Louis Vuitton Montergueil PM
  • Necklace: Forever 21
  • Bohemian Blouse: Forever 21
  • Cami by ANA
  • Shorts by ANA
  • Hair: Halley’s Curls Miami Relaxed 14″ & 16″

Today I was just feeling boho chic. I wanted to wear something comfortable, feminine and flowy in this hot Texas weather. This outfit also had to be easy to move in since I was out with my guys exploring.

Ok. . . I can’t believe I am doing this, but I decided to post my first official outfit of the day.  I lot of my youtube subscribers to my channel NHOP76 have been requesting fashion hauls and outfits of the day from myself. At first I will be honest, I  did not want to post pictures of myself showing outfits that I like to wear because I am not at the weight or size I want to be at right now in my life. 6 years ago I lost of 65 pounds and got down to a beautiful size 8/10 and I would be in heaven in that size now in order to posts outfits of the day. Right now I am a size 14 and currently working on losing 30 pounds, so as I begin to start posting my outfits of the day you will also get a chance to see me melt away the pounds in new outfits!

A special thanks goes out to my hubby who took the photos of me while we were out celebrating Father’s day. We took our son to Mt. Bonnell here in central Texas where the views were just so beautiful from the top of this mountain. We also went to the state capitol of Texas and learn a little history about the state we live in.

So divas, stayed tuned. For now my future outfits of the day will be posted here onto my blog until we get used to taking pictures and videos out on location. Once we get that down I will start posting some live in action outfits of the day on my channel on youtube. In the meantime, I would love your feedback on this first outfit of the day by leaving your comments below.

xoxo

Bag Lust: Be & D Studded Foldover Tote (Love It!!)

Every once in a while I will have a lust for something extra special. . . Okay most of the time, hahaha.  Well, late last night I was browsing the web through many retailers looking for everything from the new arrivals of fall fashion such as shoes, handbags and makeup too! I guess I was in need of retail therapy. Well, I landed on Nordstrom.com and came across this gorgeous, GORGEOUS piece of eye candy. What graced my eyes was this beautiful Studded Foldover Tote by Be & D. I was thinking, Be & D? I was introduced to Be & D by my youtube buddy Toni Duclottni while watching one of her videos on her youtube channel House of Haute and from then I was in love with their line of handbags.

This particular tote By B & D is so hot!! I love the mix of blue leather with the denim and to top that off I LOVE the studding all over this bag. The studding gives this bag that “bling bling” appeal to me. I can just imagine the many ways this bag can be worn during the season.

Bag Details:

Denim in a cloudy wash combines with supple leather to comprise a fold-over tote in an extended, vertical silhouette. Conical studs lend a modern update to the look, while whip stitching details the rolled handle for a subtle finishing touch.

  • Magnetic-snap closure.
  • Exterior magnetic-snap pocket.
  • Removable shoulder strap.
  • Interior zip, wall and cell phone pockets; key clip.
  • Suede lining.
  • Cotton/leather with metal trim.

Fit: Dimensions: 15″W x 16″H x 4″D. (Measures large.)Strap drop: 5″.Shoulder strap drop: 16″.

The price of this bag is. . . $1195, Yikes!! But for fashion I totally would splurge on this hottie, for sure. I guess I better cut back on my makeup hauling, lol because my handbag craving for designer handbags is back! Anyway, I just thought to share with you my handbag lust for the day. What handbag do you lust for? Please share I would live to know! If money was not a issue which bag would you be sporting right now or when you go purchase it? Dream Big!! And of course share 🙂
